you may want to consult someone on the "DO's" and "DON'Ts" of the motorcycle world and/or maintenance ASAP. I noticed you have been asking some questions lately that quite frankly, you probably should have already asked by this point in your motorcycling "career"....

(case in point; burning up a brand new clutch in a month)

... just a suggestion.

edit: This is what I think is beneficial from learning to drive stick before riding motorcycles. You learn to feel clutch engagement and judge the point at which the bike is ready to get moving. You don't want to rev the out of it at a light to keep it from stalling as you baby the clutch out, nor do you want to pop the clutch without giving it enough gas. I found these lessons were easier to learn on a vehicle that wouldn't fall over if you killed it.

After driving stick, shifting and pulling away on a bike came as second nature.

I was thinking he was maybe gassing it hard and then letting the clutch out really slowly to keep from killing it at a stop. This is a good way to burn up a clutch. But yeah, a month is pretty quick.

I can see that if the cable was not adjusted properly (IE too tight), then the clutch would be partially disengaged causing a minor slip on hard accellerations. This, in time, could cause the situation to get worse and worse over time. Also someone could have bought an engine oil treatment like Prolong or the likes and it would also cause the clutch to slip thus burning it up. So it may not always be user error other than sheer ignorance of not knowing things to look out for and general mechanics.
